Note: MWR encourages patrons to sign up with a personal email for two reasons:
1. We take a lot of time to fill the eNews with graphics and links to make the email easier to read and navigate. NMCI does not display those graphics or links so the email is much harder to navigate.
2. The majority of our events and programs occur on evenings and weekends when not everyone has access to their NMCI email. Using a personal email allows patrons access to the eNews at any time.
